11.2 VABS (floating-point)

Floating-point absolute value.

Syntax

VABS{cond}.F32 Sd, Sm
VABS{cond}.F64 Dd, Dm
where:
cond
is an optional condition code.
Sd, Sm
are the single-precision registers for the result and operand.
Dd, Dm
are the double-precision registers for the result and operand.

Operation

The VABS instruction takes the contents of Sm or Dm, clears the sign bit, and places the result in Sd or Dd. This gives the absolute value.
If the operand is a NaN, the sign bit is cleared, but no exception is produced.

Floating-point exceptions

VABS instructions do not produce any exceptions.
